One of the great novels of nineteenth-century England, Middlemarch is concerned with the blighted marriage of a young idealistic woman, but also presents a vivid portrait of England during the 1830s.
This rendition of George Eliot’s classic has much the feeling of a "Masterpiece Theatre" production. Carole Boyd is a very professional narrator, who never falls into mere reading. Eliot's sweeping novel, which puts a lens to the fictitious English town of Middlemarch. The complex plot takes the listener into various households and lives, revealing scandal, secret longings, and unexpected ties. Boyd maintains a comfortable pace, and the tone she sets creates a mood that is appropriate for the formality of the writing and the times. She enhances the narrative passages through her consistent enthusiasm and ease of language.
